    Default Who here is a fan of Mongolian Throat Singing?

    Rock on Mongols!



    In Mongolia, throat singing is found mostly in the western part of the country. Khöömii (written in Cyrillic as Хөөмий) can be divided up into the following categories.

    * uruulyn / labial khöömii
    * tagnain / palatal khöömii
    * khamryn / nasal khöömii
    * bagalzuuryn, khooloin / glottal, throat khöömii
    * tseejiin khondiin, khevliin / chest cavity, stomach khöömii
    * turlegt or khosmoljin khöömii / khöömii combined with long song

    Mongolians also sing in a style known as "karkhiraa" (literally "growling").
    [edit] Altai and Khakassia

    Tuva’s neighbouring states, the Altai Republic to the west, and Khakassia to the northwest, have developed forms of throat singing called ‘’kai’’, or ‘’khai’’. In Altai, this is used mostly for epic poetry performance, to the accompaniment of topshur. Altai narrators ("kai-chi") perform in kargyraa, khöömei and sygyt styles, which are similar to Tuvan. They also have their own style , a very high harmonics, emerging from kargyraa. Variations of kai are called karkyra, sybysky, homei and sygyt. The first well-known kai-chi was Kalkin.

    The Chukchi people of Chukchi Peninsula in the extreme northeast of Russia also practice a form of throat singing.[2]

    Tuvan throat singing is practiced by the Tuva people of southern Siberia. The history of Tuvan throat singing reaches very far back. There is a wide range of vocalizations, including Sygyt, Kargyraa (which also uses a second sound source), Khoomei, Chylandyk, Dumchuktaar, and Ezengileer.
    [edit] Tibet

    Tibetan Buddhist chanting is a sub-genre of throat singing. Most often the chants hold to the lower pitches capable in throat singing. Various ceremonies and prayers call for throat singing in Tibetan Buddhism, often with more than one monk chanting at a time. There are different Tibetan throat singing styles, such as Gyuke (originally: "rgyud skyad") - style with the lowest pitch of voice; Dzoke (originally: "mdzod skyad") and Gyer.



    This guy has charisma.



    The historic region of Tannu Uriankhai, which Tuva is part of, was controlled by the Mongols from 1207 to 1757, when it was brought under Manchu rule (Qing Dynasty, the last dynasty of China) until 1911.

    During the 19th century, Russians began to settle in Tuva, resulting in an 1860 Chinese-Russian treaty, in which the Qing Dynasty allowed Russians to settle providing that they lived in boats or tents. In 1881 Russians were allowed to live in permanent buildings. By that time a sizeable Russian community had been established, whose affairs were managed by an official in Russia. (These officials also settled disputes and checked on Tuvan chiefs.) Russian interests in Tuva continued into the twentieth century.

    This is just torture. Somebody call the producers of '24', we finally found some way to get Jack Bauer to talk under interrogation... lock him in a room with one of these guys. Also, never trust a culture where the women have deeper voices than the men, I was fine until that chick in vid #2 opened her mouth, and the sound of Lee Marvin singing 'Wandering Star' in mongol came out, and then I freaked. I don't know what they pay Letterman, but I bet it's not enough to get him to play through that whole CD.

    I think back in 2000, Bela Fleck did a tour where he had a Mongolian Throat Singer, an Indian playing percussion, a bassoonist, and a steel drum player, all on stage playing tunes together with his band, The Flecktones. Pretty **** good.

    What was even better, a friend of a friend recorded the show that night. While we were waiting for him to pack his gear up, Bela and his band came out and sat on the edge of the stage and allowed fans to come up and chat a little with them. Good times.
